Fifteen-year-old Jackie Stone's father is dying. When Jackie discovers that her father has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor, her whole world starts to crumble. She can't imagine how she'll live without him. Then, in a desperate act to secure his family's future, Jackie's father does the unthinkable - he puts his life up for auction on eBay. Jackie can do nothing but watch and wait as an odd assortment of bidders, some with nefarious intentions, drive the price up higher.

The overall idea was interesting, but the story actually fell flat. I was hoping it would ramp up and end with an unexpected conclusion, but it did not.
As for the narration, sometimes a reader can really make you feel as if many different people are reading. This was not the case for this book.
